Dear Jeffs(?),
The ongoing environmental disaster In Australia is frightening. Just watched your video. Jeff not sure the BB is aware of your day job as a firefighter and also your proximity to this nightmare so taking the opportunity to bump this all the way from dark and wet Belgium. Please keep safe.
François
Huge respect x2 Jeff

Thanks guys. I do try to keep the channel light as it is always nice to be able to have a bit of an escape from the continuing stream of politics and disasters that dominate the news, but in this case I had so many people reaching out to me, I thought it needed to be addressed.
We will keep doing what we can, and some of the best things we can do is to keep busy when that is all that can be done.

Finally I can get onto some of the custom work for the Alfarrari and this week I have my first go at TIG welding Aluminium by making my new fuel cell fit the car.

Many of you have seen a lot of my garage in my videos, but in this video I give you a full tour, and you may even get some hints about upcoming videos.

I've been thinking of the filler neck idea like that for mine with the stock tank. I'm getting tired of bending over holding the fuel nozzle so low at the gas station. Thanks for those ideas. I didn't realize that the surface wasn't so flat and it needs to be planned out pretty well.

It looks like the most common spot for the filler to be fitted and I have seen a bunch of different versions. Alfaholics did one with the exact same filler I think, but they recessed it. I just wanted to avoid making a rust area.

Now that the holiday season is finally behind us, I am getting stuck back into the Alfarrari. This week I sort out the boot floor and finish mounting the fuel cell.

After several months of stripping the Alfarrari apart and lining all of the new panels, I finally get to weld the back end of the car back on.

In this episode I finally get to spin the Alfarrari around and start working on the front end... Unfortunately the news is not much better at this end.

I have been away the last week on an epic road trip on some of the best roads on the planet, but I have still been releasing 2 or 3 vids a week ;)

Great video tutorial here, I have always been interested in the process of heavy modification and the mystery of how it is achieved, but when it is broken down in to segments as you have done it becomes manageable, thanks for posting and power too you folks.

Thanks mate. That is how I tackle every project. Just work on one small piece at a time and it is manageable. Look at it as a whole and you can easily become overwhelmed ;)

Good to see you here besides YT. Appreciate you documenting your bondoless craftsmanship.
There will definitely be 'bondo' (bog as it is known in Aus'), but I want it to be the absolute minimum ;)

So I have finally been doing some work in the background to get the adapter and the flywheel to mate up the Ferrari engine with the Subaru box.
